Santa Rosa much beefier than Napa

by on17 April 2007


New graphics and WiFi

Intel's successor to the Napa notebook platform is set to be a lot heavier than its previous efforts.

According to reports from the Intel Developer Forum in Beijing the successor to the Napa notebook platform, Santa Rosa, will have a spec that Napa users would dream of.

Almost every part of the Napa spec, including graphics and WiFi has been upgraded. It will come with  Intel Turbo Memory, which is a flash-based disc-caching system that speeds up loading times of frequently-used data.

While it is still a continuation of the old Centrino's one Santa Rosa variant, Pro, will have many of the business features found on Intel's Q-series chipsets, namely vPro.'

It will be based around Core2 mobile processors  with 45nm 'Penryn' CPUs arriving in 2008.
